It is now almost 7 months since my DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis) put me in the hospital at the end of October 2020. I have adjusted to taking insulin shots and figured out which foods I can eat that don’t spike my blood sugar too much.
Before I was put on insulin, I ate a low carb diet and it kept my blood sugar under control. Now that I have insulin to help me with high blood sugars, I find it easier.
After the first couple of months, I decided to get a continuous glucose meter (CGM) to see what was actually happening with my blood sugars during the day. It definitely helped me understand better what the food I ate did to my blood sugars.
It is now May 2021 and to my surprise, my FreeStyle Libre reader informed me that my time in target (3.9- 10.0 mmol/L) for the last 7 days was 100%. I have been told that I have achieved amazing results.
Since almost dying from complications from diabetes in early November last year I have been working on my blood sugar levels. Now I have been told that I have achieved amazing results.
These are the Time In Range/Target reports from my CGM (continuous glucose monitor)
- 7 days 100%
- 14 days 100%
- 30 days 97%
- 90 days 96%
- December 2020 82%
- November 2020 30%
